The Lord Mayor’s Charitable Trust was first established in the 1950s and has since continued the good work of the Lord Mayor, whose mission is to ensure the Brisbane of tomorrow is better than the Brisbane of today.
For more than 70 years, the Trust has been supporting residents across Brisbane and improving the wellbeing of the most marginalised and vulnerable members of the community. The Trust supports charitable organisations under a Trust deed and is guided by a Board of Directors, including the Lady Mayoress, Chair of the Trust.
We believe that the grassroots level is where we can swiftly make the most impact on our community’s challenges, whether it be people experiencing homelessness, domestic violence, food scarcity, illness or disability. This is why the Trust is proud to support lesser-known charities who are delivering projects directly to the frontline.
